I’m looking to paint my Beta Saloon soonish but I’ve run into a little hitch with this paint code.
I’ve only enquired with one paint shop so far and they can’t make any sense of the label in the boot. They are expecting a code something like 3 numbers and maybe a letter.

I really want to make sure it’s painted the original colour, so would appreciate if can anyone shed some light on this paint label or is this all you get.

Some paint suppliers can scan the paint assuming it's original and get the exact colour from that. There will have been quite a few lancia blues over the years would need to know the build date to have best guess as to the code.

I thought this might be a bit tricky. The car looks to have been painted before, I think.
How do I find the build date?

I stumbled across this. Does it have any true worth?

I can look it up for some cars from the chassis number but records are missing pre 78 I think. It may be that the blue didn't change over a period is it a series two and is it pre or post facelift (long or short roof gutter easiest way to tell)

Blu lancia series 2 pre facelift is code 121 from 79 seems to be 105 later cars 438
I found another lancia blu on a ICI autocolor card which has no number just a code GA21

Sometimes the same colour code can have more than one variation.

I'm curious as the paintwork in your photo of the code doesn't look like lancia blu?

Is this a better representation of the colour. It’s filthy dirty I’m afraid but it has the light on it.

Most likely 121 I think although all lancia blues are similar. I prefer the one they used on the 60s cars really dark almost black.

I went to the paint shop yesterday and compared the paint chips to the petrol cap. Clearly the car has been painted almost everywhere. As I intend to paint door shuts, most of the engine bay inc. inner wing turrets etc, back of the bonnet and of corse the exterior, then I’m going with the standard shade of 105 Lancia bleu.

As you rightly say rossocorsa, it’s almost black and a very nice colour.  I think it will look lovely when painted ‘clear over base’. And as far as I can make out, as close to original as can be proved.

Best get cracking.
